Back in the 90s, the “rishta” factor was an “in-thing” for every person who was of the marriageable age. Love marriages were a big NO and the ones who dared to follow their heart were social outcast.
Times changed, globalization occurred and there was a drift in the mindset of common Indian masses. Our older generation is now more receptive towards the idea of finding our own mates and finally, we are a relieved lot!
The question remains: how are “rishta-walas” and matrimonial sites coping nowadays? Are we still using the arranged partner service in our own unique ways – if not directly??
Here’s how life can be made easy by using an online matrimonial site:
1. Window shopping!!
Oh come on, let’s admit that we all made a matrimonial site account for ourselves at least once. Although we did not take the “paid account” option, but we did check out what was on display! We haven’t’ deleted it till date just we kinda like scrolling through the ‘options we found for you’..giggles !!
2. Arranged cum love marriage concept!
This concept exists in our nation and we take pride in it! We have to find our own compatible mates and matrimonial sites provide the best option to choose a guy/girl and present in front of our folks.Rather an easy way to find out a partner amidst those weirdos we meet daily!!
3. The best excuse!!
Picture this: you find someone; you fall in love and you wish to settle down. If you don’t want your parents to judge your choice beyond explanation, as where you both met; say that you found him/her on a matrimonial site. See that person become an “aankh ka tara” of your folks instantly. *Bazinga*
4. Creeps Association of India!
You know those creepy dude guys who stalk girls on social media and literally everywhere? Well, they are here too and they are helping matrimonial sites stay in business!
5. Find your own love
Gen-X is so over the idea of family members finding a suitable match for them. They fill their own cart, whether shopping online or finding their own suitable match. Yes, true love is happening on these websites every now and then.
6. Check out the Terms and Conditions!
Not of the website, but of the guy/girl you are planning your future with. People find “that” person, chat, exchange numbers and discuss conditions before going ahead. Totally harmless!
7. Helps you move on
Break-ups do happen and they don’t end your life. So, now you know the best place to get over your ex…Yes, you guessed it right. *Wink*
